View more images in the high school lesson activity no. 5 The Brown v. Board website is the result of a project in 2005, sponsored by the New York State Bar Association and minority Bar associations, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision [Brown v. Board DVD DVD info].

To encourage study of this important decision, the Law, Youth and Citizenship Program of NYSBA undertook the development of this website based on the decision, in partnership with the Youth Outreach Committee of the Bar and several dedicated consultant teachers, to help bring the case to middle and high school students through dynamic lesson plans incorporating primary documents and the 2005 commemoration testimony.
